Travel Diary: A Thousand Miles A Minute: Seattle To Ushuaia – Video – Shannon Mills (S&M Boiler Works)

Or to be more precise: 24,000 thousand miles in 24 minutes. It has been surprisingly difficult to condense 16 months of captured photos and video into a tolerable length of time for anyone besides our parents to watch, but we gave it a shot. The unique moments that have formed each day of this journey are a detailed tapestry that do not translate into video as magically as our minds eye sees it. The video turned out to be a decent representation of life on the road and we had fun making it.

We hope you like our home movies of our time motorcycling to the tip of South America. The video collection is published as one continuous movie (24 minutes) or as individual segments.
